CEDIA member, Trescent Lifestyles has installed a cinema room into a residential property in Mumbai to provide a family with the option to watch the latest films on a big screen, while also being able to listen to high quality audio.

The client allocated a 1200 sq ft room for the home cinema. The brief to Trescent Lifestyles was very simple - a high performance home cinema with no compromises on the performance of the system and comfortable seating.

Following the initial meeting stage and receiving the brief, Trescent Lifestyles visited the United States to evaluate various manufacturers’ top-line home cinema systems. On the list of preferred products were JBL Synthesis, Wisdom Audio, Legacy Audio & Steinway Lyngdorf. After visiting each facility to review the technology and meet the top-management, the installer determined that Steinway Lyngdorf’s Line Source System would be the perfect match for this project. The system can produce 130 db SPL and with the AMT & Line Source setup, Trescent Lifestyles was certain that every seat in this home cinema would have a ‘no-compromise’ experience. 

Acoustics played a very big role in the cinema. Peter Lyngdorf’s team custom designed the acoustics for the project and Trescent Lifestyles locally produced all the custom acoustic panels for the project. 

Kinetics Noise Control products were used to isolate the floor of the home theatre as the daughter’s bedroom sits right below the home theatre. Green Glue was used as noise isolation sealant and adhesive to build out the room. 

SMX’s ProCurv Screen was selected along with SIM2’s C3X Lumis projector for the video system.  This combination provides top quality video content for the home cinema.

The system provides a fantastic 2 channel experience and the client enjoys spending an hour a day in the room listening to his favourite music. 

A unique feature for this project is that all twenty CINEAK Recliners can be controlled through the push of a button on the iPad or iPhone. At the end of a movie, the client can reset all the chairs to the close position with the push of a single button! 

At the end of the project, the Engineering Team inspected every aspect of the room to ensure everything was perfect. This was appreciated by the client who is extremely happy with the home cinema installation.
